Hey Moff I've been meaning to post a report here for a few days, but for real life reasons I haven't yet gotten around to it. Anyway, I'm playing as Germany. I started off taking poland then turned east and slowly worked my way through the netherlands and belgium. At this point I was still pretty weak and had to proceed slowly. At the same time I found the combined English and French fleets hindering my land invasion. I knew I couldnt take on these fleets as I was, so I hid behind my Naval Mines and sallied forth with my U-Boats and then surface ships to whittle away the enemy navies. After taking the Low Countries I started my invasion of France. I was able to get to Paris pretty quickly. I found my Ju-87B's invaluable as they were able to destroy the fortress units and speed up the assault significantly. I then was VERY lucky and caught the ENTIRE French fleet in port at Brest. With that I had relative local parity with the British Navy. I also was able to smash through a single Coastal Defense unit and open up London to coastal bombardment. I destroyed several fighters and a whole bunch of cruisers and destroyers in London. At that point my fleet was superior. I finished up with mainland France and took Switzerland out for fun. Next I started building up forces for the inevitable showdown with Russia. I was able to pump out 19 railroad workers during this time and I currently (Week 24 1941) have a railroad from Paris all the way to Stalingrad. Anyway, when the USSR invaded me at the end of 1939 I was only too happy to respond. My tanks rolled through Russia until I found myself at the gates of Moscow, and stuck at Leningrad and Stevastopol/Stalingrad. It was at this point that I made a game changing decision: build up a bunch of IeFH18's. It took me a while to get them to the front, but when I had about 10 at each city I was able to annihilate any resistance. I then had an equally game changing revelation: load my artillery in Locomotive's. With this I was able to advance at a tremendous pace, basically taking out all defense a city had before the tanks even arrived! Anyway, I got to Aralsk in the south and the Urals in the east before I decided to get a peace treaty before my allies did. With peace in the east I decided to attempt Operation Sea Lion. My (at this point) overwhelming naval superiority, combined with around 60 Ju-88's and 20 Ju-87B's allowed me to successfully take Plymouth. From there it was easy: ship over Panzer III's, divide my navy in two, and work my way up the isles. By this point I also had built around 7 Bismarck class battleships and let me tell you they are AMAZING. They take out coastal defenses with ease. Similarly, allied battleships are little better than destroyers against Bismarcks. So with absolute naval domination in the north and the British Isles under my control (their capital went to Malta! sucks to be them!) I decided to take Turkey, the middle east, egypt, and north africa. IeFH18's in Locomotive's are amazing, as I was able to take Turkey in 2 turns and the entire middle east in another 2. Tanks are for clean up, while bombers + IeFH18's + locomotives + SS infantry are able to reach new cities VERY quickly. So at this point I just took Egypt and am at Benghazi. Simultaneously I built a small navy at Marseilles, including a Bismarck, a Heavy CruiserC2, a Convoy, several destroyers and Type IX subs. Using my bombers to great effect, I was able to take Corsica, Sardinia, and Tunis. So thats where I am now. Russia seems to be looking for war again and soon enough I'll give it to them. periodically appearing Allied battleships, carriers, and destroyers are easily taken out by bombers and Bismarcks. I intend to Locomotive my way across Africa and India and allocate the heavy stuff for Russia. I guess I'm going for a Domination victory, but I'm really not sure. Globally nothing much has happened. The Japanese have almost taken out the Chi-coms and trade cities with the British from time to time. I think they are on a winning streak at the moment though. Otherwise, nothing really notable has happened (except for the brief Japanese occupation of Alaska). Some comments: First of all, GREAT job! this is a lot of fun! I know you know about the pedia entries, so no worries there (i usually just check the editor anyway). However I'm still unsure what is so special or different about Mountain Infantry and DAK units. They seem pretty standard to me. Also, make sure to identify which units are Amphibious: I was SO pleased to find out standard infantry were, but sad to find that MP40 units werent. I referenced this earlier, but what exactly am I trying to do? If world domination is the goal, gotcha. I'm on my way. But as the Axis is there any other way of winning? Another thing: there are a lot of useless (as in for everyone) techs. Maybe remove some of them or add things in to justify them being there. Again, I'm really enjoying this. Great job so far!
